This past weekend was a busy weekend for fatal accidents in Las Vegas. In the span of less than 12 hours, 3 people died in 3 separate accidents. One was a motorcycle rider, one was a bicyclist and the third one was in a car accident. Sadly, all of these accidents ended up with at least one person dead. A car crash in North Las Vegas kills one and injures another.
The first of these 3 accidents happened Friday at about 3:30 p.m. in North Las Vegas. A 66-year old man was driving his Acura sedan when he was hit by a Ford Focus.
The accident happened on the 3900 block of Carey Road, new Rancho Drive. The Acura was trying to make a turn from the left lane when the Focus pulled out of their private driveway and crashed into him. According to authorities, the woman driving the Ford Focus did not yield the right of way.
Both the man driving the Acura and the female in the Ford Focus were taken to University Medical Center. Sadly, the man was pronounced dead at the hospital. The woman is expected to fully recover.
The police have confirmed that neither impairment nor speeding were a factor in the crash. It was the Focus’ failure to yield that caused the crash. This means that the family of the victim in the Acura sedan may have to file a claim for wrongful death in order to recover.
